We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

O sacred day, when first was poured

O sacred day, when first was poured

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 O SACRED day, when first was poured
The blood of our redeeming Lord,
O solemn day, when first began
His sufferings for sinful man!

2 Just born into this world of woe,
His blood for man was made to flow;
His future death was thus expressed,
Thus, too, His early love confessed.

3 From heaven descending, to fulfil
The mandates of His Father's will,
E'en now behold the Victim lie,
The Lamb of God prepared to die.

4 Beneath the knife behold the Child,
The innocent, the undefiled:
For captives He the ransom pays,
For lawless man the Law obeys.

5 Lord, circumcise our hearts, we pray,
Our fleshly natures purge away;
Thy name, Thy likeness, may we bear;
O stamp Thy holy image there.
